Seine net stand
Posted 14 May 2013 - 05:24 PM
My wife was kind enough to come with me to take pictures but she stayed on the creek bank. We only spent about a half hour just downstream from our house and it was her first time using the camera. I think she did quite a good job.
The net I used in the following pictures was only six foot long but the stand will accomodate up to ten foot. I didn't get to try the ten foot because my photograher wanted to get back to working on the yard.... Another advantage I think with using this at a ten foot length, is while no one will have to hold the net it allows multiple people to "drive the fish into it. But a person on each end would have to lift it up into a table position as I am kind of leary to try and use the pole to lift it myself at that length.
I caught a young male Orangethroat in the riffles and various minnows/chubs in the deeper portion of the creek above the riffles. We only got a picture of the darter though since I didn't want to leave the other fish out of water the amount of time it would have taken to get the camera from my wife. She did take 47 pictures but since I can't post all of them here I posted all 47 on the "Percidae Husbandry" page of Facebook if you would like to see more.
